at healthcare.gov. established by the department of health and human services as part of this investigation. we're writing to request information related to voter registration data collected during the application process. on further down, the letter says, while h.h.s. and its contractors continue to struggle with the task of processing applications for health insurance coverage, the agency uses the website to collect voter registration information. once an applicant completes the online application for health care coverage, a dialogue box appears asking, would you like to register to vote? in light of the national voter registration act of 1993, also known as the motor voter act, which requires any agency that provides public assistance to provide individuals with an opportunity to register to vote, the department decided to include the voter registration option on the health care application. the inclusion of this voter registration may give applicants the impression that registering to vote is somehow tied to receiving health care benefits, such as insurance subsidies. given the well-documen
